COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Premium Weissbier at the top of its class. Not only in the context of the Erdinger assortment Erdinger Weissbier with fine yeast applies undisputed as the classical authors, as the white beer absolutely. It is brewed with fine yeast after a delivered prescription and naturally strictly after the Bavarian purity requirement. Today still without the traditional bottle fermentation one does not do here: Three to four weeks it lasts, until the Erdinger Weissbier with fine yeast matured. For the production only finest raw materials are used. Experience of many years and constant quality controls guarantee beyond that the unmistakable taste. A Weissbier for all, those the unforgettable good taste love.

As far as introductions to beer styles go, the first time I became officially aware of the existence of wheat beer was during a field trip to Antwerp, specifically visiting an Argentinian steakhouse in the city. Being first year geography students who had been on a coach driving from Bangor in North Wales to Antwerp all day, we were hungry, shy, self conscious and, perhaps unsurprisingly ready for beer. Hoegaarden is personally responsible for a drunken 3am phone call to my dear mum from one of my friends, demanding that I personally come too reception and open the front door. Woops, wrong number... Fast forward two weeks from this incident, and after a week of drinking the white nectar by the firkin, I discover that exists several variants of wheat beer, including a large supply of German examples of hefenweizen in the nearby tesco’s. Erdinger holds pride of place as the first example of German wheat beer I ever tried, and frankly have never looked back since. Pouring a beautiful off cream approaching a slightly golden hue, Erdinger produces a mighty head which shakes hands with the nostrils on first sip, and absolutely sticks around fr the party. Banana bread, slight hint of cloves, and a subtle but wonderful waft of sweet weetabix, Erdinger is not particularly forthcoming in its nasal charms (not exactly surprising given the fifteen foot of mousse floating on top), however the taste buds start atinglin’ once the volatiles finally punch through. In the tasting, again the suggestion of cloves banana bread comes through, backed by a ever so slightly citric acidity and a rich, malty sweetness similar to Horlicks. It is a flavour profile I can only describe as the equivalent to a beer version of a cup of Ovaltine, giving a rich satisfying feeling of well being, while at the same time extremely thirst quenching. Essentially a smile in a pint glass. On the palette, Erdinger has just the right balance between creamy richness and fizzy refreshment to give that fabulous thirst quenching characteristic wheat beers pull off with such ease and grace. One word to the wise however, the slice of orange is not particularly recommended in weizens...the Belgian examples might have adjuncts that work well with the citrus, but the Teutonic example works best alone. Happy sipping!

From Alcampo. In Bavaria’s glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 6x01. Very drinkable and not bad but dull. Not much aroma nor taste and maybe a bit watery

Not my favourite of the style, but I’ll still get it when it’s available. Big, fluffy head. Lots of banana. Taste is a lot of banana bread, cloves, orange peel.
